Bread & Jam Mentor Walk: Increasing Sales

  • Whole Foods Market 63-97 Kensington High Street London, England, W8 5SE United Kingdom (map)

Kickstart your week with a foodpreneur morning walk from Whole Foods Market in Kensington to Selfridges.

Join three industry experts and a dozen fellow entrepreneurs on this morning mentor walk that will kickstart your working week. On this walk we will be focusing on how to boost your retail sales. So if you are a food and drink founder who wants to drive sales through your retailers join us on this 60 minute morning stroll through Hyde Park and learn from some of the industry's leading lights.

What's a Mentor Walk?

We've had some of our most inspiring and insightful discussions whilst taking a brisk stroll with friends and colleagues - the informal, relaxed vibe often leads to much more creative conversation than intense, face-to-face meetings. And so, this is what we aim to achieve with our Mentor Walks - they are your opportunity to informally chat to experienced industry experts as you stroll through London with a group of fellow entrepreneurs on the same journey as you. Each walk focuses on a different aspect of building and growing a food and drink business, and it's a great way to start the week.

Start: 08:00am 6th May, outside Whole Foods Market (W8 5SE).
